held. three minutes later they stopped and stood together for one minute. then they split up. tamerlan tsarnaev headed towards the finish line. his younger brother dzohkhar blended in with a crowd of spectators near the forum restaurant. at 2:45 dzohkhar was captured by cameras placing his backpack on the ground. over the next four minutes he spent time looking at his cell phone, app picture and holding the phone near his waist. then he raised it to his ear. 30 seconds later at 2:49 p.m. the first bomb exploded near the t nosh line. the affidavit noted virtually every head turns and stares in meat direction in apparent bewi nt and alarm. blah the tapes and still photos show he left his knapsack on the y ound and moved calmly but rapidly away. nds later, the secondloded at t bomb exploded at that very spot. es nf.b.i. affidavit also provides new details about friday's tense manhunt and capture. around midnight thursday a gunman approached the driver of a mercedes s.u.v. in cambridge, massachusetts. the gunman asked "did you hear about the boston explosion? i did that." he then commandee
, and also what you would expect him to say, the older brother, tamerlan, was the driving force behind these terrorist attacks. based on what the investigators are getting from dzhokhar, this government sore tells me that the brothers, according to dzhokhar, seem to be self-radicalized, self-starters. they were motivated by the driving train of thought was jihadist thought. and all the governments -- i'm sorry all the political or religious implications that entails the idea being, of course, that they thought they construed islam to be under attack and needed to fight back. that's what they're saying based on initial interviews, preliminary interviews with dzhokhar. >> where he's speaking, communicating by writing, by hand signals, nodding? >> not speaking. communicating through nodding, through writing and other ways of nonverbal. he has that bullet wound to his throat. he can't really speak. he spoke one word in that interview with the magistrate yesterday. >> no. >> he said no. and the magistrate said let the record reflect that i believe the defendant, the suspect, is saying no. h
tamerlan, the older brother, throws a package, a big package our witnesses say, at police. we now know that that was another pressure cooker bomb exactly same device that was deployed against the boston marathon, the device that we have seen the horrific results of. he throws that at police and apparently it functions, it detonates. why don't we have dozens of injured police officers from that explosion in the middle of that shootout? well, apparently what happened as he tossed it, the lid came off. now, the pressure cooker device is based on explosives building up so much pressure that it explodes the container which is supposed to be airtight but when the lid flipped off what you got was a big boom and a big bang and explosives go to the point of least resistance. so these explosives have somewhere to go, which was out into the air without blowing up the container. but i can recall hearing on the police radio last night them screaming over the radio "loud explosion, big explosion here at the scene." and that was probably that main charge. now, when they found tamerlan's body and they
was known about the older suspect who is now dead, tamerlan tsarnaev, and this trip ta hat he took to rusa last year. law makes want to know why is it that tamerlan tsarnaev was able to make this trip in the first place. should he have been stopped before he went overseas? when overseas what did he do? what was he up to when he was over there? some of this is stemming from some of the conflicting stories, quite frankly, chris, from federal officials over tamerlan tsarnaev's status. senator lindsey graham, republican from south carolina, told reporters yesterday that tamerlan was on a no-fly list, that he was on some sort of terror watch list a federal law enforcement official has told cnn that is not the case. and senator charles grassley, graham's republican colleague in the senate, asked secretary janet napolitano from the department of homeland security about the discrepancy earlier this morning. here's bit of that exchange. >> was your department aware of his travels to russia, and if you weren't, the reason? >> the travel in 2012 that you're referring to? yes, the system pinged when h
, feiz mohammed, who's an awlaki type guy. an inspirational jihadi preacher who tamerlan tsarnaev in his youtube account posts videos from. so he may have played a role in inspiring these. inspiring them or radicalizing them. but as i said, chris, we're a long way from finishing this investigation. >> so just to use your instincts as an investigative reporter, and you're a good one, the fact that he said all this, he denied any connections to any networking, he basically said this was self-radicalization. in other words, he said that they learned how to build these bombs online. if that turns out not to be true, then he has a bigger risk of the death penalty, is that what you're saying? >> reporter: sure. because then he's not cooperating with law enforcement, but he's also lost his leverage by saying this. it is in his interest to be able to tell them something. >> you think a lawyer, michael, would have told him to hold out until he got a deal? >> reporter: absolutely. absolutely. the one thing a lawyer is going to try to do at this point is to save his life. the one way to do that is
the road where the two boston marathon suspects, tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev were engaging in this gunfight with police. we'll scroll through a couple of these pictures. keep your eyes here on the screen. the photos here show the brothers huddling behind a stolen suv at times as we reported through the hours last week, shooting at police, before this older brother tamerlan charges, runs towards these officers here, then he's seen lying in the street. the suv driven by his younger brother who we know is in fair condition at this hour at a hospital here in boston, he's in the car, accelerates toward his older brother, on the ground. >> what is the context for that? do they believe he was trying to escape, do they believe he was trying to maybe separate his brother from the officers or is there anything on this? >> i think his brother was on the ground, his brother was enga engaging, strapped with explosives and the younger brother from everything i've gleaned wants to get out of there. >> maybe because of the explosives. what does he wind up doing? >> ultimately gets out of t
. the older brother, as you mentioned in the beginning, tamerlan, his picture on the icio gun fight overnight with police in massachusetts. what really has authorities troubled, they have locked down the 20 square block area or so in watertown that we have been discussing and we think they have pinched in on the man in the white baseball cap, but they can't be sure. what has them most concerned is that these two brothers have shown quite a bit of skill, and evidence of training. one senior law enforcement official told us a short time ago, these guys were almost textbook perfect in terms of operational planning and security. they stayed off the radar, but beyond that, they have shown a high level of sophisticatifi sod skill in terms of evading police, and when they were confronted with a police shoot-out, incredibly, one of them escaped that cordon. he made the point that there were more police officer there and the suspects were outgunned. he summed it up by saying when have you ever seen that? they don't known he might have other confederates or other plans. the search, while focused in wat
the tib questioned tamerlan tsarnaev in 2011, officials had quote no authority to watch him because they found no terrorism activity at the time. this scenario that an american could and would do this while flying under the radar raises serious questions regarding national security. the "washington post" writes the boston attacks might serve as a new model for terrorism in the 21st century. seeing how two kids with backpack bombs seem to have succeeded in putting a major u.s. city on lockdown, it may now dawn on al qaeda leaders that a series of small-scale attacks like this conversation the same impact as one spectacular mass casualty attack. through a combination of skill and luck, we've done well at preventing the next 9/11. preventing the next boston massacre might not be as easy. joining me today, former dnc communications director and msnbc host, karen finney, "new york times" op-ed columnist frank bruney, retired army sergeant wes moore and "mother jones" msnbc political analyst, david corn and msnbc justice correspondent, pete williams. let's talk about the latest on this ca

, the older brother tamerlan, 26, now dead, we know that in january of last year, he flew from jfk to moscow. he was over there for six months, returned from moscow to jfk in july. we don't know what happened there, except that he visited his father. scroll back down, we move south back to that region. there's chechnya. that's where his father is right now. he gave an interview to russian tv today. his father says his sons have been framed, at least that's what he believe. if you are from that region, it is muslim. what we do not know is if there is any direct connection between these individuals. one of the key movements there have disavowed them, so they're not connected in any way. the reason that they're of chechen decent is why we have focus sod much on this area of the world today. >> michelle, people have been wondering all day, the chechen fight has been about independence from russia. what does that have to do with the united states? some have tried to argue that that movement has really morphed into something a lot more broad. is that what it is? >> that would be the question. we h
's -- and the brother, tamerlan tsarnaev had the ploes sifs strapped to him. no indication that dzhokhar did. and he obviously tried to make an escape. so what does that tell you about his own state of mind and you know the idea some of these guys want to be a martyr to a case an if there is a cause and we don't know. some of them want to live. >> it tells me there's just what you said. there's a lot of people saying i'm willing to die but they don't necessariry want to die. this guy could have died. he could have leaned out of the boat and cranked out a couple more rounds and they would have put him down. but he chose not to. tactically they did everything they could to get him out of there alive. he could have committed that suicide. as long as we see the vid act of wanting to sur vief we have something to play with. we can dance with the devil to get information to save lives as long as we know this guy will not see the light of day outside of a prison again. >> where do you suppose they will take this line of questioning, clint? well, is that to me, chris? yeah. >> yeah. the things we're trying
